Farm share week 3 June 19-21, 2014

Jun 18, 2014 | Box Contents, Uncategorized

We’re into our 3rd week with our farm share box program and this week Jenny worked hard to harvest enough strawberries for the full share boxes! More will be coming since it’s early in the season-so we’ll be able to enjoy more of them as the weeks come.

My husband and I have decided to do our first juice fast this week.  We juiced enough for breakfast and lunch last night (for today) and tonight we will juice dinner and breakfast and lunch for tomorrow.  We plan on ending our juice fast Friday at lunch since we have company coming in from out of the country for a visit.  When completed it will be short-only 2.5 days-but we’re hoping that this is only the first of many in the years to come!

I know quite a bit about juicing since I’ve researched it quite a bit over the years-and we even upgraded our juicer to the huron slow juicer last spring.  It’s amazing and I highly recommend it since it allows the juice to be stored for greater periods of time-allowing you to juice more meals at once instead of for every meal.

Contents in the boxes this week are:

Half Shares
-baby bok

-green leaf lettuce
-jerusalem artichokes
-green onions
-swiss chard
Whole Shares: same as above with:
-big bok choy
-garlic chives
-green kaleThis week’s recipe is a juicing recipe.  I figured since not everyone is interested in a juicing fast but many would love to juice the most important meal of the day-breakfast.  This recipe is called Morning Glory and I got it from a juicing blog (that has a grocery list and different juices for a 3 day fast) and it’s AMAZING.For those who are interested here is a link to the 3 day fast both my husband and I are doing the fast we doubled everything in the recipe.  Remember to stain your juices before drinking to remove any excess pulp :)Morning Glory
